Edouard and the need for forward planning


The first hope during an international break is that the players return without injury.  Last night I realised that my next hope is that Odsonne Edouard stops attracting attention to himself by putting the ball in the net for France Under-21s.

He scored twice in a 4-0 win against Albania.  Odsonne’s form is either going to drop off a cliff edge, or the summer of 2020 is going to have a familiar theme for Celtic.  We should be busy planning contingencies now.

    Good move.



    When you`ve lost the plot and the argument revert to personal abuse.




    If i recall correctly ‘no deal’ was never discussed as an option and we would all be so much better off all off, all lies.



    If you agreed to buy a car of a guy because you were told it was in great condition would you still be happy to buy the car when you turned up and it was a banger??



    Would If you were told that not only do you need to buy it but you need to drive it for The rest of your life?



    If i had a chance to change the terms of The purchase i would be doing that, its called common sense. No way would i be sucking it up and driving away into The sense as The wheels fall off.

    When you’ve lost the plot and the argument do all you can to obfuscate and deflect?



    You are the past master at that…

    See that Jeremy Corbyn with his allotment and his strawberry jam – don’t be fooled – he is the reincarnation of Che Guevara.




    DAVID66 is doing the stadium tour and is also having a meal there too!



    An exciting and emotional day ahead.

    Is it POSSIBLE that many of `the people“ were too stupid to know what they were voting for?




  7. A majority of those who voted


    How many didn’t vote ?


    So was it over 50% of those eligible to vote ?


    And in this parallel universe


    Is it those same dictators who voted against their previous leaders agreement, a deal, as they want no deal !


    That are now squealing about being outvoted by others who disagree with no deal ??



    Incidentally I have little interest in politics , and didn’t vote 😂

  8. Oops


    The out vote – was this over 50% of the total eligible votes ?


    Just interested, as I have not seen this quoted

  9. Of many re importance


    My goodness when are the Celtic back playing


    FtSFA and their international games

  10. I probably shouldn’t comment on something I know little about … although never stopped me before, I didn’t vote before as I didn’t think “remain” or “leave” convinced me they knew either …. as one of the many who didn’t vote … I would now



    Canny wait till we face Accies next Saturday …. still buzzing about Neil’s start to the season …..

  11. Clive Tyldesley saying England were almost ’embarassed’ after Bulgaria have a shot on goal



    My dear god how disrespectful is that

  12. GFTB…



    Any working class person that doesn’t use their vote is a slap in the face to the people that fought for our right to vote.


    Get yer arse to the polling station no matter what you vote for. 🍀

    Both my parents said the same to me for many years …. BUT when 99.9% of politicians are out for themselves I find it hard to mark a “x” … after the expenses scandal I might have voted if they all got the sack … I would if I stole .. anyhow … hope you enjoyed last Sunday and work this week :-) am sure you did

  14. NORRIEM,

    Well over one million of the leave voters are now deceased. Three and half years since the vote, how many of those who have become eligible in that period would vote leave/remain? Todays youngsters are educated, liberal, thoughtful and tolerant. The previous few generations have ruined the planet and are destroying the human race. Todays elite disgust me. We are all victims of dreadfully unequal society.

    Evening all.



    Was struggling to overcome my despair over the result in the Youtube cup.



    That is, until someone advised me that Sevco’s entry was doped up.



    Apparently 40% of their hits were the result of a search for “Whit’s the goalie daein ?”



    Hail hail

    I think it’s a shame the appetite for conversation has disappeared from this blog.



    Combination of egos who devolve to their own blog, regular posters who are not engaged with Paul67’s latest script, no new posters.



    It’s only me, the repetition of a single joke wears thin quickly. I understand Private Eye has prospered for fifty years with that idea. Wrong.



    Public school bullying, is only that. Find another joke if your funny.



    Celtic forever

  18. So under 36% of the voting public voted to leave ?


    Is that democratic ??



    Asking for McJay 😂😂😂

  19. Oh D17


    Where do you get the stat the over 1m vote leavers have passed away in the past 3 years ???


    Or is it just 1m eligible voters that have passed away ???

  20. Greeks envisaged democracy as a plebiscite, all voted not just the elite,a compulsory vote,


    Parliamentary democracy as practised here usually ends with the tail wagging the dog.an illusion of democracy,cant have the plebs actually in control! Wot!Old Chap! ;0).


    Always remembered the 40% required to vote in favour of Devolution back in the day,Tory Govt.if I recall.

    Great photo.


    That’s the view the Inter players would have had of the Lions all day as we pummelled their goal for 90 mins! :-)

    I think a binary choice referendum, where one of the choices is the status quo, or in other words “no action” is a very flawed example of democracy. Voter apathy on the “do nothing” choice is predictable imo.



  23. Voting is corrupt.



    The world is ran by people who only think of themselves.



    That’s why I just concentrate on Celtic.



    My shining light and a distraction from the posh.



    Hail Hail 💚🍀

    Peter Lawwell and Rod Petrie.



    Good cop, bad cop?



    Bad cop, good cop?



    Petrie was the leg man on the 5 Way Agreement tween SFA and Sevco.



    He chaired the Licencing Committee that granted the UEFA Licence in 2011. The one that the SFA , now under Petrie’s Presidency, has taken two years to reach a conclusion on because it’s taken 14 months to decide if in fact the SFA should reach a conclusion or should it be CAS.



    The same case were fraud may have taken place under Petrie’s watch.



    Just saying.
